Top Ten Reasons Why Metal Is Bad

A video that clocks in at just over one minute in length was recently posted online that gives everyone ten really good reasons why metal is a bad thing. Of course, as soon as this video was unearthed, thousands upon thousands of metal fans immediately renounced their love of the genre... but enough of the sarcasm, if you can withstand horrible music, bad spelling and grammar, a bright pink background, an almost self-parodying username and awful "logic," then check out the video below to understand what's so bad about metal.

Slipknot's Clown For Iowa Governor?

The Central Iowa City View website has posted a story online about 25 people who aren't running for governor of Iowa but should be. Somehow Shawn "Clown" Crahan of Slipknot made the list. An excerpt from the article can be viewed below.

Shawn Crahan, one of the Slipknot guys, loves his native state and has lots of ideas on how to attract young people. (He’s 40.) He’s smart, thoughtful and creative, and he understands the Iowa culture — and what’s right and what’s wrong about it. He’d be an exciting leader. Who wouldn’t want to boast that the governor has a band called Dirty Little Rabbits. Besides, when dealing with the Legislature, he simply could put on his clown mask — so he could fit right in.

Mckellen Follows Suit as Knights Make Metal

It’s only been two weeks since well-known actor Christopher Lee released “Charlemagne: By the Sword and Cross,” and already, on-screen rival Sir Ian Mckellen is following suit.

The 70-year-old Oscar nominee, who is soon reprising his role as Gandalf for the two-part “Lord of the Rings” prequel “The Hobbit,” said, "I'm not up with all the latest music and I don't have an iPod and I don't know how they work.

"But I do like… music and am utterly devoted to it.” More...

Herman Li and Alexi Laiho Form New Supergroup

Two of metal's prettiest guitarists since the 80's, Herman Li of Dragonforce and Alexi Laiho of Children of Bodom, have teamed up to form a supergroup of sorts; the world's prettiest metal band. The yet-named side project is expected to feature Laiho on vocals and the twin guitar assault like no other. Kevin Talley has been recruited for recording the drums until a permanent drummer can be found.

While Dragonforce was regrouping from the recent departure of their vocalist ZP Theart, Herman Li contacted Laiho with the proposal to work together. "He's a fantastic guitarist and frontman," said Li of Laiho. "And he has fabulous hair," he continued. "It's absolutely divine!"

While the band plans to remain fast and heavy as hell, they may usher in resurgence of hair metal on looks alone. "My goal is to fill stadiums with hot, young women once again," commented Laiho.

As soon as word of this new project got out, Steel Panther reportedly had challenged the band to a "battle of the sexes." (Ed. huh? Sexes? Sexiest?) Stay tuned for more details on this supergroup and the impending battle for some emasculating title (tbd).

Rob Zombie To Direct Blaxploitation Film

Shock rocker turned movie director Rob Zombie caused a stir in Hollywood today after he announced that his next movie will be a blaxploitation film. Defying the critics, Zombie stated, "It's no secret that I love pretty much everything from the 1970s and after doing a few horrors in the vein of those times, I felt it was time to expand my horizons. The 1970s Blaxploitation films are considered some of the decades real classics by underground film fans such as myself and I want to introduce the genre to a new generation."

The movie, reportedly entitled, "Black Zombie," is said to have a story revolving around a pimp named Slick Back and his best friend, a blind barber simply known as "Spot." One day while walking past a Chinese restaraunt, Slick Back discovers the ancient "Hong Kong Book Of Kung Fu" and trains himself to a near perfect understanding of the martial art. However, while Slick Back is training and Spot is trying to discover why he keeps accidentally cutting peoples ears off, an evil corporation led by it's President Crackor S. Honkey, is planning to demolish the local hospital for disabled children and replace it with a ballroom dancing school. No further details have been revealed as of yet, though it's expected Zombie's wife Sheri Moon Zombie will appear in the film.

However, Rob Zombie has vehemently denied that the film will contain any traces of comedy, stating, "I learned my lesson from the El Superbeasto movie."

You can expect, "The Itus" to hit the screens around December but in the meantime, a trailer for the movie can be seen at this location.

Nergal and Lady Gaga to Collaborate on Costumes

Known for his multiple costume changes during live performances, Behemoth’s Nergal has signed on Lady Gaga as Behemoth’s official costume designer. The decision came when Nergal decided that he was “spending more time on his costumes and less time on the Behemoth sound.” The change will “allow him to focus less on how evil he looks and more on how evil he sounds.”

Reportedly, Nergal was impressed and subsequently contacted Gaga while watching Gaga’s “Poker Face” video. “I was fascinated by the variety and colors used [by Gaga] and immediately knew that was the direction I wanted Behemoth’s costumes to take.” Gaga was reportedly ecstatic to accept the offer and is “a big fan of the band” and has been following their career for several years. “Their image intrigues me and I’m excited to see where I can take this opportunity” stated Gaga. It’s reported that she will make much use of “lace and sequins”.

It’s rumored that there are future plans for a Behemoth/Gaga collaborative EP in the future, but that has yet to be confirmed.

Twilight Author Admits To Writing Metal Albums

In a recent interview discussing how Cradle of Filth would be composing the music for the next Twilight film, Twilight author Stephenie Meyer accidentally let slip that she herself had been moonlighting as a musical writer for various Scandinavian metal bands. Although she indicated that she’d written several albums the only release she would openly admit to was Swallow the Sun’s latest CD. “It’s true,” she stated, “bands have been approaching me to write their music because they’ve run out of ideas. Satan isn’t selling to pre-teen girls so they needed a fresh take. I’m really surprised no one figured it out, I mean it’s even called ‘New Moon’ for Joseph Smith’s sake!” She wouldn't divulge whether the band was officially team Jacob or team Edward.

When vocalist Mikko Kotamäki was asked if Meyer was involved in the Barren Earth EP “Our Twilight” he reportedly collapsed into a fetal position and began sobbing “Why do they have to sparkle? Why oh why do they have to sparkle?” Other bands are expected to come forward soon and admit Meyer had a hand in their recent releases.

Eddie Van Halen to Hold Apology Press Conference

Eddie Van Halen released a statement today announcing his plans to hold a press conference to “right old wrongs.” The full statement reads as follows:

“Over my career with Van Halen I have worked with many people, both publicly and privately, musically and otherwise. And in most cases I did not treat them with the respect or dignity they deserved. At this point in my life, after begin treated for cancer twice in the past, having some rocky recent tours and getting married again last year, it is time to heal all the old wounds and right the old wrongs once and for all.

“On May 1, 2010, I will be holding a press conference from 5150 Studios to apologize. It will be live without a net, in front of the press, the media and the cameras. Sammy, Dave, Mikey (love the hot sauce!), Gary, Charlie Sheen, Kenny Chesney, my hip surgeon and cancer specialists, Valerie, Teddy T, Brian May, Quincy Jones, Michael Nimm (love the videos!), even Alex and Wolfie (love the name!) and a hundred others – they will all get what they have deserved from me for so long.

“I have finally realized that despite my groundbreaking guitar playing and the fact that I drove the unbelievably popular music for every Van Halen album, those folks are the real stars of Van Halen and deserve better.

“It is time for me to take my rightful place playing rhythm in the back while everyone else gets to be at the front of the stage singing the chorus and playing the solos. Looks like I’m going to get the one break I’ve had coming up since 1981.

“I’ll see everyone in a month. Love Eddie.”

Ozzfest Is Dead, Long Live Trumpfest

Ozzfest is no more. At least not in past incarnations. Rumors abound that Sharon Osbourne, the favorite to win the latest season of Donald Trump's "Celebrity Apprentice," is forging a deal with the multi-millionaire to save Ozzfest 2010 and beyond. Sources close to Obsbourne claim that she has been negotiating "a multi-year deal" with Trump to keep the travelling festival alive. While still featuring her husband, Ozzy, as the main headliner, the festival will likely be renamed "Trumpfest." Instead of securing corporate sponsors such as the ones that made 2008's "Freefest" possible, the festival will bear the Trump name much like ballparks and arenas have sponsors and bear their names.

Despite sponsoring the fest, Trump, who is reportedly "a fan of the 80's metal" (but not Bret Michaels or Poison), will buy a majority interest in the festival and take a percentage of the earnings of the festival for the next several years.

Sharon could not be reached for comment, but Ozzy, when contacted, had only this to say: "I dunno a bloody thing about it. Sharon handles all the business and festival stuff."

Nevertheless, more information including the Ozzfest 2010 Trumpfest 2010 lineup and tour dates, is expected soon.

Demi Lovato to Appear on Anaal Nathrakh Album

Disney recording artist and Camp Rock star Demi Lovato will be appearing as a guest vocalist on Anaal Nathrakh's newly announced album "The Great He-Goat," presumably named after the Francisco Goya painting on the track "Corrupting the Foundations of Bad Faith."

"I've always been a fan of extreme metal and it's a dream come true to finally sing a chorus for a band that I've respected for years. Hopefully I can introduce my fans to this excellent group and their fans will be open-minded about what I do," commented Lovato. "The whole pop and metal crossover thing is cool. It'll be just like an eighties record where Eddie Van Halen was playing a solo for Michael Jackson and I'm proud to be a part of it."

Annal Nathrakh's Dave Hunt had the following to say, "People bitched about Mick's whole Sorrows thing so when Demi's publicist approached me I was like why the bloody fuck not? We're not in this for the money. We don't care what you think. If some wanker has an issue he can sod off."

Demi has also gone on to state that after her contract with Disney is over she'd be interested in performing in a power metal band that would be similar in sound to After Forever. "I hope to stay involved with the genre for years to come. This is not the last that the metal world has heard from me."
